I'm completely frustrated and am about to give up with BFing all together. I know this website will encourage me to keep going, and I need all the support I can get! My baby was born at 35 weeks and spent a week in the NICU. During our stay in the NICU he was able to latch on and suck on his own, although I'm not sure he actually swallowed anything. I have been trying several times a day since we have come home from the hospital to get him to BF. We are at the point right now that he will latch on, suck, and I think swallow for as long as I will let him. I am using a nipple from the bottles he uses in order for him to latch on easier, and it appears to be working just fine. The problem I am facing is that he will eat until I make him stop, which leads me to believe that he isnt actually eating much at all. We either stop a BFing session after 30 mins (and then I offer a bottle) or when he falls asleep. I had initially offered him only 2 ounces after a feeding (he bottle-feeds up to 5 ounces at a time) but he will then fuss until I give him more. If he falls asleep while BFing, I can wake him up, but he is no longer interested in BFing, and will then wake up in 10 mins fussy. I will take any suggestions I can get, as of right now, it seems like BFing isnt really doing either of us any good. I'm still pumping my life away, and when we try BFing, it just adds more time into the process. I really really want this to work. Thanks in advance!
